Another user already mentioned that the silverback gorrilla is a term describing a male gorilla, i am not sure about simian hierachy but i believe that the silverbakc is the dominant male. (is this right?) The fact of the matter is, that as dominant male there could be no such thing as a female dominant male gorilla, therefore it would be impossible for ace to emulate the call of a female silverback, given that the poachers are pretty thick, i'd say that the fault is in thier corner, not aces.

Ace didn't say it, one of the poachers did. Which you're right, might be on purpose to prove THEY don't know everything. :P

I quote from spud :"lure away the poachers, the tall one says "Sounds like a female silverback" " Spud said it was the poacher who said female siverback....not Ace. So quit with the blaming Ace. I think he proves himself about his knowledge of animals in the first Ace movie when he explains the difference between a porpoise and a dolphin.

Silverback is a race of gorilla, the reason the species is called this is because of the male's silverback. So technically you can say a silverback female, referring to the gorilla species' call.

It is true that only a male can be considered a silverback becuase of status in the gorilla troupes, but this could quite possibly be intentional to show that Ace isn't quite as educated about animals as he claims.
